By Don Ruhl

In Matthew 22, Jesus said that loving God is the first commandment. Right along with that is loving Jesus, for He is God. That being the case, what happens when you love the Lord Jesus?

“He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

– John 14.21

Did you catch all that Jesus declared? When you love the Lord Jesus Christ, here are the things that happen:

  • You will have His commandments and keep them
  • You will be loved by the Father
  • Jesus will love you
  • Jesus will manifest Himself to you

What experiences on earth can we have that surpass those? If these things are so, let us love the Lord with all that we are and with all that we have at all times.

Questions:

  • Why do people keep from loving the Lord?
  • What has kept you in the past from loving the Lord?
